Fifteen years ago...

I was pregnant, blissfully serene, and sweetly moving so slowly through the spring dreaming of my sweet daughter.


I was stunned into reality by the images, the helplessness, and the horror. I was comforted by the resiliency of Oklahomans. Oklahoma City, all of Oklahoma, soldiered on... We have never forgotten.

I've relived the bombing many times today through the local news coverage of the anniversary, a short post that I made (there weren't enough words to express everything that I felt back then or today) and reading several other Oklahoman's posts. With each and every blog post the goosebumps have covered my body and tears come to my eyes. Such a terrible event in, not only Oklahoma's history, but our country's history. Probably the hardest of all are the children that were killed or who lost a parent or sibling. I pray for each and every one that was directly affected by that day.

It was a very difficult time for sure. So many innocent lives lost. It's amazing how people can pull together in times like those.

What an awful day that was. I realized, for the first time, that America was vulnerable to terrorism and that life had changed forever...

I remember seeing the pictures on TV and wondering what third world country they were featuring until I realized it was in America. Surely a sad day indeed. I have a dear friend who lived in Oklahoma City during the time of the bombing and worked in a hospital as a nurse. she was able to share with me lots of what was going on and people's thoughts.

There are days in our lives that we will never forget where we were - what we were doing when tragedy hit.. This was definitely one of those sad sad sad days.

Love to you

I'm wondering if our memories of that day will ever fade. I can still recall so many of the details and feel such heaviness in my soul whenever I think of it.

Thanks for writing about it.

It still breaks my heart.

To your question...we were at Arbuckle Lake in Sulphur. Buckhorn road, loop C/D. On the way there is the Travertine Nature Center where you'll see the Little Niagara.

It's hard to believe 15 years have gone by since that horrible, senseless tragedy.

I agree. Even after 15 years, I still can't make it through the museum. I did run the memorial marathon this year and had the honor of running for awhile with two young ladies who lost their fathers in the explosion. It puts life into perspective.
